The purpose of this project was to survey the skilled newcomers who have recently received employment services in order to get a better sense of the needs and gaps in terms of labour market integration supports for skilled newcomers, and to identify which supports are the most effective.
Overall, employment supports and services improve labour market outcomes of skilled newcomers. Skilled newcomers appear to be satisfied with the services they received and would recommend the services to others. Employment counseling, networking events, and work placements are most associated with successful labour market outcomes.
